Coma Story, a novel based on Diego Garcia depopulation, explores the link between dreams and creative problem solving.

St. Louis, MO, September 02, 2010 — Bringing together lucid dream concept and creative problem solving, at first, sounds illogical. Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established. However, the power of the subconscious during coma is impossible to determine.

The novel centers on the Chagossians, who were forcibly relocated by British, to make way for a military base. The narrator, a coma survivor, along with Diego Garcia native, conspires to gain back the British-controlled islands without violence. The narrator’s fascinating coma journey, and challenging the superpowers, explores the link between conscious dreaming and creative problem solving. Coma Story welcomes readers into a remarkable double-life, and guides through a mind-opening voyage.

Coma Story is available at (ISBN: 978-1453696774). More details can be found at

Singapore Internet Marketers sets to Win Regional Challenge to Reaffirm Internet Market has Potential

Singapore, (September 2, 2010) – A team of internet marketers from Singapore will pit their skills against members from countries namely Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand to win the 30 days Cost Per Action (CPA) Singapore challenge in September 2010.

CPA is a form of advertising where the advertiser pays based on specified actions taken by the end user. An internet marketer would market a product relevant to the needs of the consumer and earn a commission when the user purchase the product.

According to a recent survey done by ADD Marketing Group, 95% of internet marketers and affiliate marketers fail to make any money online.

Jonathan, an internet newbie who is in this scene for less than half a year, said: “When I started to learn the ropes, it seems that everyone has already done everything and all the stuff was gone and over-done.”

A group of internet newbies from Singapore have decided otherwise and come together to make money online together as a team. They set a challenge with their coach and apply various internet marketing strategies such as SEO marketing to promote their chosen product. They extended the challenge to nearby countries and the nation with the highest sales generated will emerge the winner.

The Singapore team has set a sales target of US$18,000 by the end of the 30 days challenge.

Asked what the team will do with the money earned, they said: “At this moment, we have decided to donate ten percent of the profit to a local charity organization but we have yet decided which organization will receive it.”

The team leader, Aaron, added: “This is in line with our mission to make a contribution back to the society. At the same, we want to reaffirm that money can be made online. Most people want immediate results and as soon as they hit any form of roadblock they give up.

“With our newly gained experience, we want to replicate our success and help more people to blast through their roadblocks towards success in their internet marketing journey. After all, teamwork makes dreams work.”

Will this group do Singapore proud? For additional information on their product idea, visit

New single So in Love on digital sale!

Singer, songwriter and composer Moh Dediouf is a world traveller. Born in Dakar in 1974, his influence is international. Through his music he has proven to be the personal manifesto of/for the Africa renewal.

From his early years in Dakar to his life in Europe, Moh Dediouf explored multiple influences (pop/rock, house music), that he blends with his African roots, thus creating a unique sound.

His debut, self-produced album, released in 2007, has already gained recognition: Moh is the first French artist to win the First Prize in the World Music Category at the International Songwriting Competition. His song Adouna was chosen among more than 15000 tracks and 100 countries.

Moh Dediouf is now working on his second album, Smile Way of Life, a humanistic project that gathers artists from the African continent but also North Africa, Switzerland, France…

And the winner is…

His talent was rewarded again this year, his track Africaaa being the only song from a French artist to be featured on the 2010 official World Cup Compilation Hello Afrika. The lyrics, which are both in Wolof and in English, convey the energy and the diversity of the African continent. Africaa has received full attention because it represents the richness of African music and symbolizes the African unity that so many artists want to promote.

I have a dream

A hopeless dream? Not so sure… A wind of renewal is blowing on Africa, putting African artists together, including Moh dediouf, all willing to reinvent the continent in their own way by promoting its cultural strengths. With his track So in Love, which is a hymn to universal love and a true call for brotherhood, the artist makes his mark for bringing peace to Africa.

Release of the single So in Love: 15th august 2010

Software Reduces Contact-Handling Costs to Just 10¢

iCube Office-2 ( ) launched by Owtsar Technologies, a Chennai, India based software firm, will deliver such a performance, according to the company.

Chennai, India, September 02, 2010 — Does an organization’s contact-handling performance, for phone, correspondence and face-to-face communication, answer 90% of incoming calls in seconds and reply to incoming correspondence immediately. Can a customer’s contact experience with a business provide a face to face discussion with all relevant records, at just 10¢.

iCube Office-2 ( ) launched by Owtsar Technologies, a Chennai, India based software firm, will deliver such a performance, according to the company. ( ) When a Customer contacts a firm, it is expected to reach the right person in time and complete the purpose of the call. Research shows that only 20% of the calls reach their destination and that Costs vary from $25 for face-to-face to 10¢ for online contact. With work shifting to home and mobile, it has added to the problem. Voice-mail according to experts has addressed the symptoms and not the problem. The ‘ problem being how to access the right person in a timely manner at a minimum cost to the organisation.’

iCube Office‘ solution enables an instant face-to-face contact with the right person online . It would also retrieve and display all emails and documents shared between them on both computers. License is based on number of users, but any number of customers can be added with a customer id linked to a customer relations officer within the company. ‘It cannot get faster than this’, said Mr. John Martyn, Marketing Director at Owtsar. ( ) A face-to-face meeting makes sense only when records are available for reference, he added. If the CRO is not available the Customer can opt to discuss with any other person within the organization.

Every company wants to retain its customer base and ensure that every need of their customer is provided by them. Providing access to the right person in a timely manner at a minimum cost and immediately answer their queries would ensure that the customer base is intact. That is the concern ‘iCube Office’ would address. ( ) The current market need has necessitated such a system. When it is available at competitive rates without the need for trained personnel or new hardware, it then is an ideal solution.

“We will offer the application in different formats” said Mr. John Martyn, the Marketing Director at Owtsar Technologies. “It will be made available as a SaaS model with individual company id and user package hosted in secure Data Centers in North America or Europe. Larger firms can host the system individually either in their premises or in hosted servers in data centers; they can also split their servers and host them in multiple places, based on geographical locations, applications or even offices and departments. We are very flexible in our offerings” he added.

Together with this comes a email system with total corporate management features and an embedded encryption. One can send encrypted emails to any email account including hotmail, gmail, yahoomail etc. The recipients need not be registered or install any software in their computers, but can also send an encrypted reply. A full fledged Documents Management System (DMS) is also available with the facility to upload and edit documents such as doc/odt and convert to pdf.. Version control, access control, link control and audit trail is available. Legacy Applications that are currently in use can be integrated with the system. Third party applications such as accounting, bill collections etc can also be linked with the system. A basic CRM for customer data, Staff interactive tool for discussions, Admin Control, multilingual facility, RSS feeds, desktop version and Mobile access for Win OS only, are some of the other features available now.
